Pre-production is the most overlooked, but possibly the most important stage of your project. Lots of companies make the mistake of jumping too quick into the production and filming, without having the vision or strategy in place. This results in a video that often looks amateur, rushed and produces no results in the end. At Airview, we make sure that before even starting to consider the shoot dates, you have a clear structure. Everything from concept, to storyboards, to the finished script is essential to produce videos that make an impact.
KNOW YOUR BUDGET

Many companies will ask for a quote without taking into consideration location, props, talent, equipment and other significant variables that will affect the price, as well as, the final look of the video. 9 times out of 10, if you miss one piece of the puzzle, the puzzle will fall through, thus it's extremely important to know how much you can afford to spend.
